History I Saw on My ISA Excursion to Stratford-Upon-Avon

Had to make sure I woke up early enough so that I wouldn’t miss the 2 hour coach ride to Stratford-upon-Avon, Shakespeare’s birthplace! This free ISA excursion was an experience that left me with a much greater knowledge about the town and about Shakepeare himself. Our first stop was at the house where William Shakespeare is said to have been born and grew up in.

It was a very quaint house with lots of small rooms that each served their own purpose.
All throughout the house were people dressed in costume explaining what each specific room was and what would’ve happened back then.
One thing that I found the most interesting was the windows in one room of the house. This was a place where all of the guests who came to the house would sign.
Next, we had a little tour around the town and ended up at the church where William Shakespeare attended and is buried today!
The church was filled with stained glass and intricate designs which were very incredible to look at.


Lastly, it wouldn’t be a tour of Shakepeare’s hometown without seeing his ghost make an appearance!
